So imagine my confusion when I come out to the barn this morning and see a NICE, ritsy, 6 horse trailer parked in our lot (lets remember that I work at a non-profit therapy farm that barely scrapes by). Now imagine that I'm just walking along, totally puzzled, when I glance over at our corral and see a LARGE, drop-dead gorgeous percheron stallion standing, totally content, chewing some grass. WHAAAAAT?!
Now I knew that dispite the fact that we love to dream about having a draft for our therapy one day, theres no way we could afford that, especially right now. So ofcourse, I knew something was up. I ask the BO and I'm shocked to find out that there are actually six of these 2,500 pound beasties right here on our farm, and not just any old work horses....no.
They're actually the six full-contact Jousting horses (not just the fake performance horses, but the REAL thing) from The Knights of Mayhem that airs on National Geographics every Tuesday, and they're boarding with us for the night while they're performing in Liberty County! ( Knights of Mayhem | Full Contact Jousting )
So ofcourse, I just HAD to take some pictures ;)
Sadly, I wasn't able to get any pictures of the other two blacks or the flaxen chestnut before they left for the joust, but I did get some pretty snazzy shots of the other three!
The big black stud that I first discovered ;D as well as my favorite little disabled kid, meeting him <3
The other black that I got a picture of. He was very interested in us and a total sweety.
I believe that they said this guy is a freisian x perch. They each eat an entire bale of hay every day o.o
And then the big paint colored guy. No clue as to what he is but my guess is partially Gypsey Vanner or something, considering his coloring and the fact that he's 100% draft.
My favorite picture.
Sadly I was still working when they left to the joust, so I didn't get to go see them, but just meeting these guys was great!
Oh, and Sour says HAIIIII! What a goof.
